This issue of Ri-Vista was developed as an exploration of a dichotomy and its meanings in the current landscape design scholarship and production. Walking and staying are two subjects often considered separately, while rarely studied in association. The goal of this issue is, in fact, to answer some questions: how landscape architects, planners, and educators are looking at walking and staying in the landscape? What is the state of the art of these disciplines with regard to these two actions?  What are the examples, theories, and concepts that take into consideration these ordinary human activities? Along these lines the issue - articulated in four main parts: Concepts, Ways, Reading, and Design, and two Reflections, offered by John Dixon Hunt and Frederick Steiner — aims to establish tracks and points of view on how landscape design and designers have found forms and ways to enhance the value of landscapes, crossing or stopping in them.
